Its Life Ministry (ILM) was born from the evangelism/discipleship ministry “It’s LIFE”, developed by Dr. Lawrence H. Phipps. It’s LIFE offers an effective way to share one’s faith using the acrostic, “L.I.F.E.”. Dr. Phipps also wrote the follow up book for new believers, More Abundant LIFE, 100 Days to Start or Restart your Christian Walk.
The purpose of ItsLifeMinistry is to Lead & Inspire Fruitful Evangelism. The goal is to encourage pastors and church staff families and help revitalize churches by rekindling a passion for reaching people for Christ.
The design of ILM is for Dr. Phipps to work with churches in several ways:
- Outreach Revivals – Guiding churches to implement simple outreach strategies. Preaching is designed to motivate members to perform “Random Acts of Kindness” and distribute simple invitations to church. Cards and tracts are designed by ILM.
- LIFE Revivals – Leading churches with a core (15-20) who are ready to go to the next level in evangelism/discipleship. Preaching is designed to lead the congregation to pray for and support those who will lead the LIFE ministry.
- Sunday School/Small Group Revivals – Helping churches to learn how to build small groups using Dr. Phipps workbook “Growing Sunday School TEAMS”.
- One-Day Revivals – A simple event to motivate churches toward revitalizing their ministry and reviving outreach.
- Consulting – Evaluating churches and helping to develop a course of action for organizing ministry, reaching people and making disciples.
Dr. Lawrence is also available for associational and denominational events.
Currently, Dr. Lawrence H. Phipps has some availability for Sunday only speaking engagements. For more information, please email us or call us at 334.328.5232.
The motivating verse for ILM is Matthew 4:19. Jesus says, “…Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” (KJV) These words of Jesus led to the development of ItsLifeMinistry. We want to help followers of Jesus become fishers of men.
We believe that the greatest work of the church is to glorify God. We also believe that the greatest way Christians can glorify God is to share with people the good news of His Son. Paul says that the Father has “…given Him a name which is above every name….” (Philippians 2:9 KJV).
*ItsLifeMinistry does not have set fees for revivals, consultations and speaking engagements. The speaker serves on the basis of expense reimbursement and love gifts.
